I see yeah that does make a lot more sense. Does that mount into some existing holes or will I have to re-drill to install that? I think I'll order it tonight, provided they ship out here to HI.
Mounts in the existing holes. I suggest tack welding the bracket in place, though. I struggled for months with my stock bracket and this bracket to keep the bolts tight enough to not make noise. I broke several 1/2" Grade 8 bolts trying to get it tight enough to not squeak or pop. Finally I just had a friend weld the bracket to the frame (three 1" stitch welds) and two years later it's still not made a peep.

I have had the IRO double shear for about a year and it's seen about 15,000 miles i have never had an issue with bolts coming loose or anything. The only complaint was the lower bolt work but was a tad short for my liking so i used a longer grade 8 bolt and again no issues.
That is a perfect candidant for a 4x4 conversion!! Although i dont know how easy it is to find parts on hawaii but you just need a 4x4 trans, t-case and front axle with the same gear ratio as the rear. Oh plus dive shafts. Or just find a parts jeep and use that

She's back in the game! FINALLY, 3 months and a massive Rubicon Express fail later, I've finally got all of my eager parts are sitting in my garage. What I decided on after much research is as follows...
- 4" IRO Lift Kit - Yes, 2.5" AAL and 1.5" Shackle - I'm not too thrilled with it, either, but it's all I could get my hands on within the time frame I wanted (Hawaii needs to move closer to the US). Also, I plan on replacing it with full packs (probably Deaver) once those little guys get lazy
- Double shear adjustable track bar with drop mount
- RE Twin-tubes all the way around
- OME steering stabilizer
- IRO adjustable lower control arms
- IRO SYE and SV rear shaft
Here's some pics, fresh from Oahu Krawlers shop to my door...
Now this'll be my first real build on an XJ, so it should be a big learning experience.
The bad news? I just got all these parts in, and I have to fly to mainland on Thursday for 2 weeks So I've got to wait even longer to get started.
